  • 5-6 Chicken Quarters
  • Chopped Cilantro for garnish
  • White Rice for serving
  • Black Beans for serving
Mojo Marinade:
  • 4 Navel Oranges juiced & 1 orange zested
  • 5 medium Limes juiced & 2 limes zested
  • 1 Grapefruit juiced
  • 3 Serranos thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup of Cilantro
  • 10-12 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 tbsp of Fresh Oregano
  • 1.5 tbsp of Garlic Herb Seasoning optional
  • 1.5 tbsp of Ground Cumin
  • 1.5 tbsp of Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp of Kosher Salt
  • 2 tsp of Black Pepper
  1. Add all of your ingredients for the Mojo Marinade (except serranos & olive oil) to a blender. Blend for only 4-5 seconds in order to begin the mixture, then add the olive oil. Blend until fully immersed, then once done add the sliced serrano peppers. Add ¼ cup of the marinade into a separate bowl to reserve for later before adding to chicken.
  2. Add your chicken quarters to a food safe bowl and pour the remaining marinade over the top and mix thoroughly. Cover and place in the fridge, along with reserve marinade, to sit for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
  3. Preheat your grill for a two zone indirect cooking at 300F.
  4. Add your chicken to the high heat side of the grill to sear for about 2 minutes per side. Once the chicken has been seared, pull them to the cool side of the grill to finish cooking. Cook for about 1-1.5 hours until they reach 170F internal. About 5 minutes before the chicken is done, baste them with the reserve marinade. Pull the chicken off once done to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Serve the chicken with rice, beans, sliced limes and cilantro. Enjoy!
